Team Our Lady of the Angels will be running in the 2021 Bank of America Chicago Marathon to support Mission of Our Lady of the Angels!
Mission of Our Lady of the Angels exists to provide material and spiritual support to W. Humboldt Park, Chicago - one of the most challenged neighborhoods in the US. The Mission feeds about 3000 families a month, provides additional material and pastoral support to families, youth, and senior citizens, and, most importantly, brings the love of Christ to a neighborhood desperately in need of hope. More info about the Mission at www.missionola.com.
Funds raised from Team OLA 2021 will be used to:
(1) Continue to respond to the complicated needs created by COVID-19 and the social unrest of summer 2020
-The Mission's neighborhood was hard hit by COVID-19, the economic effects of COVID-19, and many businesses were looted and burned in summer 2020. We will continue to respond with additional material and social service support.
(2) Help the Mission open its new outreach center when COVID restrictions are lifted
-We anticipate completing the renovations of our new outreach center in summer 2020. We hope that funds raised by Team OLA 2021 will cover all of our opening costs- painting, furnishes, new doors, new signs etc.
Donate today to be part of the miracle that is TEAM OLA!
The Mission is a 501(c)(3) and relies entirely on the donations of private donors.
